    Help me Build a Decent Cheapo Bedroom Sound system

    Ok, Currently I have this HTIB in my bedroom.

    From my System, I plan to use the Reciever and the Subwoofer.

    So Basically I am lookin for"

    L + R Speakers
    C Speaker
    SL + SR Speakers

    So Far I was thinking of this:

    For L and R speakers:

    Polk Audio R50 Cherry ($69.99 Each)

    For SL and SR speakers:

    Two-way bookshelf loudspeaker ($49.99 Each)

    Center Speaker:


    So basically, are the speakers I posted above good? keep in Mind Im trying to go for a cheap build.
    And what would be a good Center Speaker to pair it with the rest?

    I don't think that anyone on this forum is going to tell you that those speakers are "good".

    I mean, they are cheap, so that's pretty good.

    I guess if you can listen to them in person and they suit your needs, go for it. Aside from that, not sure what to say. I'm not a big fan of Polks and those appear to be fairly low end Polks.

    Try a pair of these:

    They sound great for the money (I own a pair)
    and for a center, you might consider this:

    It's a great center channel for the money, but it is very large.
    You can consider using x-ls speakers for surrounds and a center,
    Good luck, vardo

    Another option would be to build slowly vs going with 5 "cheapo" speakers, if budget is a concern.

    I also like Vardo's suggestion if you can swing that. I haven't heard them, but trust the opinion of the members here.

    Even tho I am no fan of Polks, I am going against the grain and reccomending these.
    They look great, the specs are okay, and your receiver is a bit limited (with audible
    distortion) .
    Alll this means is that you need a speaker that is maybe not so detailed, if frys has a return policy I would try them, 140 bucks for a pair of floorstanders is going to be hard to beat
